Stoic have returned to where it all began in 2012 when they used Kickstarter to launch The Banner Saga, their now award-winning tactical role-playing game. The first game in the series had an initial goal of USD 100,000 though it went on to reach a total funding of USD 723,886, far exceeding its goal.
The series is one steeped in fantasy and Viking culture, as you lead a caravan of villagers, fighters and Varl across a world shattered by what could very well be the end of days. It’s a rich, story-driven series that is certainly well on its way to receiving a concluding chapter as Stoic’s crowdfunding campaign has already raised half of its USD 200,000 goal.
No release date is set in stone yet for Banner Saga 3, though the Kickstarter campaign’s “expected delivery” is listed as December 2018, a likely placeholder for Stoic.
